My name is Stu Cook. I received my Masters in Counseling from Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis, MO, with additional coursework at Harding School of Theology in Memphis to complete my Tennessee licensure. I have worked in a variety of mental health care settings with patients of all ages, from the child and adolescent unit at Lakeside Behavioral Health System to hospitalized elderly patients at Friendship Village retirement home in St. Louis, MO.
I am a faith-based counselor whose therapeutic services are grounded in the Christian vision of the human person. I find that almost all scientifically-validated therapies are in accord with this vision, and these are what I seek to practice with my clients. Regardless of my clients’ faith backgrounds and perspectives, I am deeply privileged to walk with each and every one of them through the trying seasons of life.
